Hwi Noree

Working on this also, most definitely not done yet-- but the pressure to show progress has motivated me to continue working on it! God Emperor of Dune has so far been my favorite Dune book. It's said that Jabba the Hut's palace was inspired by a combination of Baron Harkonnen and the image of the God Emperor with Hwi Noree, the object of His desire that he can never truly have. This depicts the moment that they meet for the first time; i tried to stay true to the descriptions in the book but I took some liberties. Leto is beginning to realize he has a weakness, and Hwi sees the tragedy of his circumstance. I really need to figure out what going on in the background... And foreground. I spent all my time on Hwi and she turned out to look like a Disney princess. Don't worry, I'll add the incense burner.

The Sphinx

Something I'm working on now-- I hate doing perspective on curves so much! I think i lost something about her face that's not in the painting and in general I think I'm gonna make her a bit bigger, those the most important changes to me right now. I also don't know if I'm happy with a square composition yet but I really wanted to show the "wing" effect.. I might even crop off the victim, I dunno. Teal and orange are so great for sci-fi lighting colors to the point of cliche so of course I had to do one. Or five.

Lady Sketches

here are a bunch of lady sketches in line I've done, since otherwise they will probably never see the light of day into full-blown drawings. I will always have a hate-love relationship with pin-up, mostly love. You might recognize some characters.

Hello There

Alright, so I'm really gonna start a blog now. I've had this account for a long time but I never really started posting or put traffic through here, so now I will. I felt like I needed a place where I could just post WIP or sketches because I don't really have an appropriate place for it. I'll post finished work too, as well as the steps leading up to it. Critiques, advice and other comments are all welcome as I start each piece. Should I post all progress shots in the same post or individually you think? If anyone has advice on that please do tell. Here's some of my previous work to get this started!
